See me slide! Weee!
Seemingly endless calvacade of the many entertainment options avail in San Francisco. From ballroom dancing, to singers, to flamenco dancing to Cinerama movie premieres, ("How The West Was Won"!) to Eugene O'Neill plays to playland (love the lounge connected to the bumper cars!) to partying in general. Fun, but again, it gets monotonous after a while.
